The Bottom Line With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market. The D-Link Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router DIR-825 is a stable performer with great features and an excellent Web interface. The outdated and bulky design, relatively short range, and merely average throughput, however, lessen its appeal.
